1 quart of fresh cherries
2 cups of sugar
1 package of yeast
1 gallon of water
Colander or cheesecloth
Jug or large container

Step1Remove the stems and seeds from the cherries. In a large bowl, carefully crush the cherries to release the juices.
Step2Dissolve the sugar in 1 cup of hot water, stirring to combine. Let the mixture cool to room temperature.
Step3Mix the yeast in 2 cups of warm water. It may foam a little; that's okay. Let this cool as well.
Step4Combine the cooled sugar mixture with the crushed fruit and stir well.
Step5Add the yeast to the sugar and fruit mixture and blend together.
Step6Fill your jug with the fruit mixture and add remaining water until the container is full. Put the cap on your jug and store the wine in a cool, dark place. Ensure it cannot be reached by direct sunlight.
Step7Let your wine ferment for 2 to 3 weeks. After this time, strain your wine through a colander or cheesecloth to remove any chunks of fruit and store it in a bottle or container for enjoyment.
